March and Rally Against the War in Iraq

Nov 19 2005 - 12:00pm
Nov 19 2005 - 3:00pm

Event Description:

We hope you are planning to participate in the march and rally against the war in Iraq on Saturday, November 19, in downtown Houston.

This is the event that was originally scheduled for September 24, the day that hundreds of thousands of people marched in Washington, DC and other cities to demand an end to the occupation of Iraq.  The Houston event was rescheduled because that was the day that hurricane Rita hit.  

Participants will assemble at 12 noon, Nov. 19, at Market Square (301 Milam), and then march to City Hall (901 Bagby) for a rally with speakers, music, and poetry.

Our demands will be:

  • Stop the war on Iraq!
  • Bring the troops home now!
  • Stop U.S. torture!
  • Military recruiters out of our schools and communities!
  • End the occupation of Afghanistan and Palestine!
  • Stop the war on immigrants, communities of color, and workers!
  • Defend the civil liberties and civil rights of all!

Bring signs and banners that reinforce the event message.
